ANDIAMO 2.XT is part of the ANDIAMO family of powerful, high-end AD/DA MADI converters. “Big brother” to the successful ANDIAMO 2, ANDIAMO 2.XT offers a higher level of integration and flexibility thanks to the addition of digital AES inputs and outputs. ANDIAMO 2.XT is thus a 32-channel AES and MADI A/D D/A converter with 32 analog and 16 AES3 I/Os that delivers exceptional sound quality.
The device is housed in a compact 2U 19” casing for efficient use of rack space.

ANDIAMO 2.XT is also available in an SRC version with sample rate converters at the AES3 inputs switchable in groups of eight channels to handle asynchronous signals.

An internal routing matrix enables any input port to be connected to any output port for simultaneous conversion between analog, AES and MADI. Converter sensitivity can be switched from high to low (hi/lo) – discrete for A/D and D/A.

The device may be operated locally or remotely via the ANDIAMO Remote software. Supported remote methods are USB, D.O.NET, ‘MIDI over MADI’ and ‘Serial over MADI’.

ANDIAMO Remote (Windows® / OS X®) offers access to the following features:

  • Matrix Mode which offers free signal routing on a per-channel basis.
  • 4 FS support – the device supports sample rates from 44.1 kHz up to 192 kHz to meet the highest sonic demands
  • Level control – output gain/level trim for individual channels
  • AD/DA calibration in 0.1 dB increments for precise adjustment of AD and DA converter reference levels

The settings and the routing matrix are stored inside the device.

Port redundancy
ANDIAMO 2.XT is equipped with two MADI ports as standard, offering seamless port redundancy and switchover. Both MADI ports are always active and carry the same MADI data, except when the Extended Routing feature is deployed.

Extended routing
The Extended Routing feature enables both MADI I/Os to be used independently to:

  • make full use of all conversion channels at higher sample rates (96 kHz)
  • double the range of available MADI input channels
  • create two individual MADI feeds

Quick overview
The front panel provides level control and status LEDs for real-time monitoring of signal condition for all input and output channels.

Selectable clock sources are word clock, AES input, MADI input or the internal clock. The current system clock is provided at the word clock output at any time.

The device may be configured to order as follows:

  • Version "A":  +06 dBu / +15 dBu
  • Version "B":  +09 dBu / +18 dBu
  • Version "C":  +15 dBu / +24 dBu

Safe operation
Thanks to two phase-redundant power supplies with separate IEC inlets and AC power switches on the rear panel the device offers the highest reliability.
